Sooooo… I’m sucking at NaNoWriMo. Absolutely sucking. My word count is the same as it was on Day 2, and it is now Day 10.
Maybe I’m not a writer. Maybe it’s a story that will never be finished.
Maybe I’m just a lazyass.
How are you doing at NaNo-ing?
I really don’t have a post for today. Stupid NaBloPoMo pressuring me into feeling like I need to post something clever.* I read post after post about election day, and don’t want to post about it myself. Mainly because I voted weeks ago, so today just marks the day of relief that I don’t have to watch anymore stupid annoying campaign commercials.
I worked really hard today, and was actually exhausted mentally when I got home. I toned close to 2000 images in about six hours, which may not sound too intense… but holy crap is my brain tired. And my eyes. Sometimes I get really really sick of looking at the computer screen.**
I also haven’t worked on my NaNoWriMo at all in the past two days. That is bad, because to stay on track, I really should be writing about 1600 words a day. And now I’m two days behind. Craaaaaap. How are you other NaNo crazies doing?
And I’ve been Netflixing the entire Friends series, and I’m currently in the middle of season six. I gotta say… I have never really found any of the guys on that show super attractive… but lately… I could eat Ross with a spoon. Maybe it’s just been a while… but he is looking mighty hot lately. Never thought I would think David Schwimmer — is that even how you spell his name? — was attractive.
That is what I’ve got for today. Some complete and total random crap. Enjoy!
*Awesome how it only took four days for me to get annoyed with NaBloPoMo this year!
**And yet, here I am, on my computer.
This morning, I had a soccer game. I play in the women’s league here, and it’s a great time. We’re in a low enough division that we’re mostly just playing for fun. It just feels great to get out into the fresh air and run around for about two hours on Sundays. I don’t actually know if we won or lost, because with about ten minutes left in the game, another player kicked me really hard, squarely in the calf (she didn’t mean to, but still… ouch!). And then with about five minutes left in the game, another girl on our team got hit in the face with the ball, and it almost knocked out one of her front teeth… as in, she was actually holding her tooth in place. So we spent the last chunk of the game trying to find a dentist that had an oral surgeon on call. It was a bit of a mess.
Aaaaand, I went bowling today! It was a Meetup event for the group that I organize, and it was super-dee-duper fun!! I haven’t been bowling for a very long time… probably not since sometime in college. There was a waaaay sketchy alley near our campus, but it was pretty cheap, and right near the $4.50 theatre, so we would often catch a movie and then hit up the bowling alley.
The one we went to today was pretty nice… run down in all the right ways, bright and shiny in all the right ways too. We had fourteen people, and bowled two full games (on two lanes) in just over two hours. I pretty much sucked. I got three strikes (which were super exciting!), but my overall scores were pretty sad. But who cares? It was way fun! I drank beer and ate shitty bowling alley nachos and had a blast with a big group of people.
And, just for fun, here are my awesome bowling shoes:
nanowrimo word count: 2851 — going good so far!
This year, I am not only attempting NaBloPoMo, but for some absolutely crazy reason I am also going to try NaNoWriMo! And I’m adding this on to my already full plate of designing and launching a new website for my photography business and researching and applying to grad school, not to mention working 32+ hours a week and attempting to have some semblance of a social life.
What am I thinking?!?
Anyone else doing either NaBloPoMo or NaNoWriMo? Anyone crazy like me and trying both?
